Autism Speaks fellowship for Alex

Congratulations to postdoc Alexandros Kanellopoulos, who has been awarded a prestigious Autism Speaks Meixner Translational Postdoctoral Fellowship. Alex is using drosophilia as a model system to study CYFIP function, and in his fellowship he will study how reduced CYFIP levels in different neuronal populations affects behavior. Additionally he will also look into ameliorating phenotypes seen in the drosophilia model of CYFIP reduction. More information can be found here on the Autism Speaks website, and media coverage on the VIB website here.
